it in the fascinating relationship between president obama and mohammed morsi. two mag ma tist pragmatists trya way to mediate this. you see it in the backdrop of surprising riots in jordan which will cause increasing problems, you have that changing environment which you know far more about. but the arab street needs something different. these governments now need to be more responsive to their people so that is an opening for a different relationship. and the president, no american president is going to criticize israel's launching of this war. but this is an opening for a relationship with egypt, with turkey, to implement a cease-fire that will monitor arms smuggling into gaza. that will monitor israel's relationship. overarching all of it, such a painful issue to discuss. overarching -- all of it is a history. going back at least to '67. of the united states' role, maybe, the united states' role as the enabler. as the political diplomatic economic military enabler of an israeli policy. in many ways, a younger generation is seeing israelis, that is not in the long-term benefit of the security of
with palestinian president mahmoud abbas and she is set to sit down with egyptian president mohamed morsi. >>> no claim of responsibility on that bus explosion yet but word is that hamas has blessed the attacks. we go to ben wedeman for more on that. >> reporter: what we heard from a nearby mosque is an announcement saying that, quote, unquote, lions from the west bank had carried out that attack in tel aviv. there was also the suggestion in that announcement from the mosque that hamas was somehow responsible for that attack. however, the television affiliated with the hamas movement said yes, they did bless that attack but said it was a, quote, unquote, natural reaction to israel's offensive against the gaza strip. so, there has been no claim of responsibility by hamas or by anybody else at this point regarding that attack. now there was some scattered celebratory gunfire in gaza after news of the attack in tel aviv. i'm not aware of anybody handing out candy. it's important to stress that not everybody supports hamas in the gaza strip. and there are many people who are unhappy with the
of cairo. demonstrators are angry over president mohammed morsi's decision to increase his power. morsi stripped powers from judges to overturn any of his decrees. cnn's reza sayah is in cairo this morning. we had hopeful seen the protests in the capital. are they spreading now? >> reporter: it looks like it, ramdi. a number of protesters trying to attack the offices of the muslim brotherhood. that's when they say the muslim brotherhood fought them back, and that's when you had clashes between the two sides. a number of people injured and arrested there. also, reports of demonstrations south of cairo, but the heart of these demonstrations continues to be here, tahrir square. we're going to give you a live look of what things look like right now. a few thousand people there. many of chem with their tents pitched. these are people who represent the liberal factions, the youth rights, the women's rights groups, the secularists here, and when you talk to them, they say they're determined to stay here until mr. morsi, the president, heeds their call. they're the peaceful protesters. at times
is a live look at tahrir square. group of hard-core demonstrators vowing to stay until until mohammed morsi invokes a decree granting himself absolute power. this is how bad the violence got. thousands clashing with police and morsi supporters and new pressure on the president to back down and fear that violence will flare up. steve? >> reporter: the number of those tents put up by protestors has grown. they are intent to stay there throughout the week but the number of protestors on the street has declined dramatically over the last 24 hours. on late friday there were up to 40,000 people on the square. the protests did turn violent here in cairo and other cities. buildings torched. police cars torched. a lot of tear gas and pepper spray in the shutdowns between protestors and security forces. and morsi and the top justices. many chief justices here in cairo and across the country they will no longer to go work until the president repeals his decrease for a power grab. we're seen what could be a show down on the streets. that is when supporters on tuesday and saying that he is trying to be
said president mohamed morsi. clearly he felt that his position was greatly strengthened by brokering this peace deal between israel and hamas in gaza. but i think he's overplayed his hand. you just showed that video of the protests there in cairo. we'll have to see where this goes. the great fear is that the muslim brotherhood, like other fascist organizations, will be one man, one vote, one time. and we've seen the muslim blo brotherhood move very swift tloi consolidate their power. >> the u.s. stood squarely behind israel throughout this conflict. does that quiet any critics who thought president obama was soft on israeli security? >> i think it absolutely should. what we saw even before the election here in the united states is that netanyahu has said time and again even in the face of critics that there has been no stronger ally to israel than the united states. the criticism kept comincoming, though. after this incident, i really do think the critics will be quieted. there's a lot of talk about how successful the iron dome program wus was. it deflected over 80% of the rockets th
where mubarak stood. the question now is where does mohammed morsi stand, and how important of a role does he play in ending this before it gets too far? >> i think president morsi of egypt plays a critical role. he and his government are, as we speak, trying to broker a cease-fire. he is being aided and supported in these efforts by important arab players such as the prime minister of turkey, the crowned prince of qatar and cairo. even the tunisian prime minister that's visited gaza, and this is a muslim brotherhood president who has very close ties to hamas and, therefore, he is a valid interlocuture. >> i don't think they want to see a ground war or an extension of this conflict because it will destabilize an already destabilized region, especially considering what's happening in syria. >> ambassador let's talk about israeli politics as former ambassador to israel, you know the political system there well. we just finished our election. there's an election coming up in january. how much of this could possibly be the prime minister showing the strength of his administration as he st
protests are continuing against president mohammed morsi's decision last week to grant himself sweeping new powers. now the justice minister says a resolution of the crisis is imminent butis not saying how. >>> in cairo, talks began between palestinians and israel. egypt is working with the two sides. they're negotiating a new border arrangements for the gaza strip. the palestinians want a complete lifting of a block aid while israel wants and ends to arms smuggling. >>> forensic experts arrived at tel aviv today, teams from switzerland, russia and france will take three samples of yassi yassir arafat's body to determine what killed him nearly eight years ago. >> we hope that all these experts will manage to basically finds what we're looking for, the truth. >> arafat's widow and many other palestinians believe he was poisoned. earlier this year a swiss lab found what it called significant traces of pulonium210 on his tooth brush. the investigation could take months. >> it's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. >> bounce houses, they're becoming increasingly popular at parties and in
to the government in egypt, the president mohamed morsi, that they would stop firing into israel. if that were to be revoked, that would be a violation. they would be breaking their word to the egyptians and that would cause some serious repercussions i assume, christiane, between the egypt government, muslim brotherhood-led government, and hamas. >> reporter: well, i was obviously talking about what's the perspective from this side was. but of course israel's demand was that there would be no more rockets and no more of that fire going into israel. that was something they really wanted. and of course israel does not want to see hamas resupplied through the tunnel network. that is still to be worked out. i asked him whether or not he got weapons and whether hamas was getting weapons from iran, and he gave me a non-confirmation confirmation. it's an open secret that they come through those tunnels. so that has to be taken in hand. we're not sure how that's going to happen, but obviously there is some egyptian role in that as well. but, yes, egypt is the guarantor of this cease-fire. neither sid
to hear, egypt's president mohamed morsi suggesting progress in attempts at brokering a cease-fire. and backing hamas, released a statement saying, the travesty of the israel aggression on gaza will end in a few hours. we're going to get to the details of all of this and the apparent pause in fighting in just a moment. but first, we want to look at the united states role and all the various players that are involved in this. and in about an hour, secretary of state hillary clinton is to meet with israel prime minister benjamin netanyahu. tomorrow, she is scheduled to meet with the palestinian authority. mahmoud abbas. he's in the west bank. that's on the opposite side of israel from gaza. he's going to be talking -- talking to the palestinian authority, it is a way really to communicate with hamas. now, clinton cannot speak with hamas directly because the united states considers it a terrorist group. so by talking to palestinians she can reach hamas. talking to egypt's president is going to be her last stop. as we see here. so by talking to egypt, that's another way for her to
as the appeals report suspends work to protest the decrease that gave mohammed morsi near absolute powers. steve harrigan is live in cairo with the very latest, steve. >> those protestors are out again for the 6th night in a row at tahrir square scuffling with police. we've seen exchanges of rocks and teargas on both sides, several protestors coming away injured, police injured as well. nowhere near the numbers we saw last night where as many as 200,000 demonstrators were in the square. they are demanding not only that the president pull back on his decrease but the entire government gets toppled. judges from two of the courts including the appeals court has gone on strike. they say they are not going to work again until the president takes a step back. we are seeing no comprises from president mohammed morsi. in fact we are hearing from his supporters in the muslim brotherhood that they plan on staging major marchs across the nation on saturday in support of mohammed morsi. they have kept their distance perhaps trying to reduce of conflict between two sides. megyn: steve harrigan thank you. new
egyptian president mohammed morsi basically saying you know that judiciary that we have? you know the judges that we have? if i make a decision, they are not going to be able to review anything that i do anymore. essentially cutting out the judiciary becoming by all accounts a dictator. >> yeah. all the checks on his power were essentially removed. and it did appear that this guy became a dick day or two overnight. what was worrisome about it is how quickly it all happened. and basically a 12 to 24 hour span after the united states congratulated mohammed morsi on doing such a great job helping to broker a peace agreement between hamas and israel which may beer maybe not. maybe he did a great job. there are also arms being smuggled through egypt so maybe he got too much credit. >> he seized the day. his name is on top of all newspapers. here i am, i need to consolidate power this morning. >> charles krauthammer believes there is a connection between the praise that came from the united states and what president morsey has done now in egypt. >> i'm not surprised at all that the brot
're with us. i'm jenna lee. jon:. i'm jon scott. the first elected leader, president mohammed morsi expected to come face-to-face with senior judges in egypt who say his power grab has gone too far. there are indications that the both side are trying to find some middle ground. morsi's maneuver unleased a rage of protests that continues to rage across the country. meanwhile the u.s. embassy in cairo says there are sporadic clashes between protesters and police near its entrance. we're told some rocks landed inside the walls of that huge compound. embassy officials say there is no indication they are the target. egypt wields enormous influence in the middle east peac process. that power demonstrated by brokering the cease-fire between is rainfall and hamas. steve care began streaming live too cairo with the latest developments right now. steve? >> reporter: jon, this is a key meeting between egypt's president and the chief justices in cairo. already there are hints from the president's side that compromise may be in the offing. perhaps a scaling down of that presidential decree which basicall
settlement here. >> mohammed morsi is in a difficult position. if he doesn't look like he's going to do something with his muslim brotherhood brothers, all the radical extremists in egypt, they are going to say what we have is for? gerri: everywhere you look. thank you so much. great to have both of you on this topic. still to come, what to do with your money as the fiscal cliff gets closer. and this christmas season will have you spending money on gadgets. what are the best technology toys out there? the answers are coming out. gerri: for forget black friday. great thursday is when retailers are opening door buster deals. here are some of the most sought after devices. christina, welcome to the show. one of the most interesting things i've heard about is that now is the time for apple discounts. you don't see apple discounts very often. >> apple retail stores don't put things on sale as a rule. the only time of year where you will see official apple savings, you can save money off of an ipad or whatever. gerri: of the big headline. you can never find discount on apple products. and if
-fire's holding so far. >> and you thank egypt's president mohamed morsi for that? >> he is so far now proving to be a constructive partner certainly as proven in this last operation. >> is he honoring the peace treaty with israel? >> i think there's peace between egypt and israel on a daily basis, yes. >> what about syria? what would you like to see the government of israel as far as syria is concerned? because it's intense what's going on right now. about 40,000 people have been killed over the past year and a half. >> it's horrible. it's a terrible tragedy. we, the people of israel, look at the people of syria with great respect, even awe standing up and risking and even giving their lives for freedom from the terrible bashar al assad regime. we want them to go. we've long wanted him to depart. he is an ally of iran. he has not only killed 40,000 of his own people, he's tried to make a secret nuclear military program, he's helped in providing tens and tens of thousands of missiles to terrorists in lebanon and gaza. he is a loose cannon. we want him gone. we want to see a democratic and peac
read a verse from the koran and later egypt's president mohammed morsi gave a fiery speech in support of the palestinian people on state tv. listen. >> we support the people of gaza. what hurts them, hurts us. >> hate and violence between the israelis and palestinians was sparked by this. israel's assassination of hamas's military chief on wednesday. an assassination that israel called necessary because of increased rocket attacks from gaza into israel the last several weeks. our senior international correspondent ben wiederman has been covering the middle east. you've been covering it for decades now. when you see israel moving hundreds of troops to the border of israel and gaza and saying it's going to call up 16,000 more reservists, what does that sound like they're preparing for? >> certainly would case that they're preparing for a ground invasion of gaza. in fact, this is very similar to what happened in the 2008, 2009 fight between hamas and israel. israel for the first few days pounded targets around gaza, and then sent in the troops. certainly, i mean, if you listen, for insta
, the principles of the 2011 revolution is in jeopardy, and they believe its current president mohammed morsi who has put those principles in jeopardy. all this outrage and fury as the outcome of a set of decrees suddenly announced on thursday night. these give them sweeping powers and it seems to be an effort to push through the drafting of egypt's all new constitution. one of the decrees says that no one, not even the judiciary can overturn and appeal any of mr. morsi's declarations, decisions since he took office in june. this order seems to be put in place until a parliament is in place. several months from now. technically this is a man who can do whatever he wants for the next few months without any oversight. that's one of the decrees, fredricka, that people here are outraged about. they're describe this as a power grab by mr. morsi. does it seem that most people understand that and does it make a difference at all? >> reporter: no. they reject that position by mr. morsi, and that explains the outrage. dramatic scenes in tahrirr square, including alexandria and port sayid. these are remini
throughout the week about what the new president, mohammed morsi has done, a member of the islamic brotherhood, is egypt the next iran that the united states now has to fear? melissa: well it could be. morsi frankly is consolidating power and he is squeezing out the minority, and the minorities are the christians, the liberals and secularists many of whom are in the square right now. the constituent assembly writing this constitution you referred to earlier, the liberals and the secularists and christians have long left to participate in that because they were being frozen out of the process. so it's, it is questionable the value of this document and whether it will accommodate some of the rights and social and political justices that the people in that square are wanting. bill: many people consider morsi to be moving along that line. i mean do you see it yourself? or do you see him holding back from that? melissa: well i think he is probably going to pull back a little bit. i would like to belief the administration and state department is working certainly, you know, off the media
in the summit meetings then. from there, he spoke with benjamin netanyahu and mohamed morsi about ongoing fighting in ga gaza. and hostess isn't liquidating just yet. they'll be in mediation to work out differences. back to "hardball." >>> we're back. according to some reports, the president could name a successor to hillary clinton as early as next week. i think it could come this week. it's a decision fraught with risk. "the new york times" reported yesterday that the white house aides say the president's favored candidate is susan rice, the current ambassador to the u.n. but republicans like senator john mccain and lindsey graham have threatened to filibuster her nomination thanks to her appearances on tv following the benghazi attacks. would the president risk starting off his second term with a decision that would likely lead to a bitter confrontation fight? richard wolffe is vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com. he's also an msnbc political analyst. and jay newton-small is a diplomatic correspondent for "time." richard, i want to get your sense of the president's thinkin
for the downfall of another president. last week president mohamed morsi placed himself above any oversight, declaring that, quote, the president may take the necessary actions and measures to protect the country and the goals of the revolution. morsi's office says he is trying to blunt and punish remnants of the old regime but there is no bed body to keep him in check. and egyptians are attacking his new power. >> we have a new -- a new -- >> reporter: and the united states, which once saw egypt as its closest arabally, says morsi's power grab is against the spirit of the revolution. the president's office says the moves are just temporary, but many aren't buying it. and now supporters and opponents of the president are planning large protests for tuesday, proof that almost two years later, this revolution isn't over. alex marquardt, abc news. >> so he's going to answer to no one. >> that story's amazing on two levels. one, just the short-term memory that some people have, and, two, the old saying, we all hear how power corrupts. the country got done overthrowing a guy who had ruled with a
jim's top courts today suspended their work in protest of president mohamed morsi's decr decree. joining me to talk more about the middle east is ambassador dennis ross, an expert on the region. he was the chief middle east negotiate for president clinton and president bush and served as a special adviser for president obama. he is a mideast analyst. both supporters and opponents are planning more giant protests on friday as well as sad. what's your assessment of the situation and the back and forth between the two sides? >> well, i think what we're seeing is is that this is a new egypt. anybody who thought that president morsi could come in and act like president mubarak and could rule as opposed to govern, there's no doubt that's not the case. there's no doubt he miscalculated. he thought in the aftermath of brokering a ceasefire between israel and hamas, that gave him a new standing internationally, gave him new stature in the region, and it did and he could somehow use that to convert it into new power within egypt himself. what he's finding is in fact the new egypt is an eg
this is where they will remain until president mohamed morsi backs away from his controversial decree, which says no person, no authority can overrule his decisions until a new constitution is put in place. >>> tissue samples from yasser arafat's body are in the hands of forensic experts. his grave was opened today in ramallah. samples were taken from his remains. the exact cause of the former palestinian leader's death has long been a mystery. now testing will be done to find out if arafat was in fact poisons. >> the indications we have or the convictions we have that israel have done this assassination but yet we still need evidence. >> israel meantime denied those allegations. >>> a fiery scene in downtown sydney, australia, today. look at this with me and you'll see a cab, look at this, of a construction crane engulfed in flames, black smoke. it gets worse. because this is the moment when the crane, this arm here collapses, falls into a building, barely misses the busy street below. here's where the story gets a little bit more intriguing. the operator of the crane was also the manager o
a new decree by president mohammed more see an morsi and his government thaebgs eplts them from judicial review. the president spoke out to the crowd in front of the presidential palace today. he insists his new decree is only temporary and is designed to keep supporters of hosni mubarak from blocking his reforms. kt mcfarland joins us, and wahil farris is also with us. moris' decree is not sitting well with a lot of people. they say he is a dictator and demanding him to resign. >> he is. he's got control of the legislature he's the president. he has control of the executive branch and the military now. a couple of months ago the mail tear remade some shaeupbgs, h shakeups. if you can't take over the judicial branch make sure it doesn't have the authority to go after him. why is this important to us? eegypt is about to hit its fiscal cliff. it has economic crisis on the horizon. they can't feed their people, they can't give them fuel. they don't have transportation fuel and without foreign assistance the egyptian government and morsi himself will face a lot more demonstrations. people we
maccallum. gregg: i'm gregg jarrett in for bill hemmer. hillary clinton met with mohammed morsi, and another meeting with mahmoud abbas, and then with benjamin netanyahu she expressed a commitment to israel. >> america's commitment to israel's security is rock solid and unwaivering, that is why we believe it is essential to de-escalate the situation in gaza. heather: doug mcelway joins us live if the white house. what is the latest with the talks with secretary clinton? >> reporter: no read out yet on the talks ao egyptian president morsi yet. we did get a read out on her talks with mahmoud abbas. no signs of any kind of progress or breakthrough, but just appreciation for the effort. the move towards the cease-fire very much come phra ka*eulted by thcomplicated by a terrorist attack on a bus. the white house condemned the attack in the strongest language. these attacks against israeli civilians are outrageous. the united states will stand with our israeli allies and identify and bring to justice the perpetrators of this attack. that statement very much in line with a number of administration
.s. embassy in cairo. there are thousands back in the street and they are angry, demanding president mohammed morsi, the new president step down. steve harrigan streams live in cairo, it is nightfall now. what do we know about the u.s. embassy, steve? >> the u.s. embassy building is really just down the block from where i'm standing here and egypt security forces have put up a 12-foot high call of cinder block to keep that alleyway safe where the embassy is. the public services section which visitors use is closed today. that part of it is closed off. the embassy itself has not been targeted but it is part of a rough taeub rough neighborhood around tahrir square where protestors are throwing rocks and police are firing teargas. two buildings were set on fire, those blazes are now out. warnings issued to all americans to avoid the downtown area over the next few days due to the unrest, bill. bill: when will the new egyptian president morsi speak, do we know that, steve? >> reporter: we expect to hear from him on national television later tonight in a taped address. he's likely to introduce a n
a recent decree by president mohamed morsi granting himself near absolute power in that country. managing director joins me now. obviously the impact now of the market here in the oil market in particular is what is each of the false into civil war. what happens to oil them. >> you have to look at the suez canal, therefore the price of oil. they do have a history of the army stepping in to maintain this. order in a situation like "the trade" time, what we have now is a different type of egypt. we had a guest on yesterday telling us the muslim brotherhood and hamas are the same thing. a terrorist organization in the minds of u.s. officials. >> there's a segment of it that is in another segment that is more modern wanting to rule with sharia law. it does not hit the city of military activities hit the muslim brotherhood and of itself is fighting amongst itself in addition the secularist. this is an evolving situation that will take several years to work out. they want to become a revolutionary anti-american, so the threat is there another more to keep prices up. you can't jump to the conclu
on a new constitution today despite the power grab by president mohamed morsi. parliament members voted earlier to keep sharia law as the main sport of legislation there. how about the lucky folks who struck it really big? only two tickets matched the powerball tickets last night. the prize is $579.9 million with $379.8 million cash option which to me is like 380 million anyway. melissa: i had one number. lori: i am rich in great colleagues. employees of knight capital say an eerie silence have descended over the company with competing bid for the trading outfit. charlie gasparino with latest on the future of knight capital. >> if i won, guess it would not be making this call to break the news. no, i did not win. i do not gamble. here's the thing, what is kind of interesting is we have not yet gotten sort of a pressure release by virtue of what is offered. i have a lot of calls, it is owned by viola, former nymex ceo. that is kind of weird. another preservation's last night, another discussed terms, but you generally get a press release or official bid. we don't have that yet, so we are
" magazine gives us their exclusive interview with egyptian president mohamed morsi. that's straight ahead on "morning joe." i knew it'd be tough on our retirement savings, especially in this economy. but with three kids, being home more really helped. man: so we went to fidelity. we talked about where we were and what we could do. we changed our plan and did something about our economy. now we know where to go for help if things change again. call or come in today to take control of your personal economy. get free one-on-one help from america's retirement leader. >>> welcome back to "morning joe." quick weather update to get you door throughout this thursday. the famous christmas tree is now successfully lit. and it's a nice chilly morning along the eastern seaboard. not a lot of active weather today east of the rockies. all that nasty stuff's on the west coast. i want to show you what happened in europe yesterday. a rare event. this tornado was in italy. down by the heel. pretty rare this time of year to get tornados in italy. you don't usually associate large tornados in this portion of
's leader is part of the muslim brotherhood, clearly on the palestinian side. mohamed morsi reaching out to president obama and saying, we consider this an act of aggression on israel's part. and this must stop. how does this endanger the entire region now that egypt's sort of been sucked into all of this? >> reporter: well, everyone here knew that the arab spring really changed things here. and now that you're seeing the leadership in egypt starting to make maneuvers -- everybody was waiting to see how that leadership was going to act towards israel. as you know, they've had a peace treaty for dozens of years. when morsi got into power, he said he would leave the peace treaty alone. however it gives you some idea of how things are changing. there certainly is concern on israel's part. they certainly do not want to be at war with a bunch of different people, surrounded by different countries, that they do not git along with. they already have deteriorating relation with his turkey and now you're seeing egypt. we know for a fact that egypt pulled its ambassador to israel out of israel yes
netanyahu and the newly elected president of egypt, which also makes this an interesting equation, mohamed morsi. let's call their relationships complicated. how does that affect the dialogue and possible negotiations moving forward? >> well, president obama and the entire american government have been unequivocal in terms of israel's right of self-defense. but what is also apparent is that our relationship, the american relationship with turkey, with prime minister is of great importance. also one of the things that can be extracted from this circumstance, while president morsi, the new egyptian president, is not like president mubarak, he still plays an extremely important role because of his ability, unique ability, to influence hamas hopefully in a more positive direction to create the dynamic for a sustained cease-fire. what's also important is that even though israel has engaged militarily in gaza, the egyptians under president morsi have not, at least to date, suggested that they would compromise their peace treaty with israel. which is a very important occurrence. now, if israel go
mohammed morsi announced far-reaching powers placing himself above any government law. that has sparked the violent clashes that he see here on the streets and dozens of protests but the country's justice minister now saying there is some sort of resolution on all of this imminent. steve harrigan joins us now streaming live from cairo with the latest. steve, do you think that we could see some kind of compromise today on this? >> reporter: martha, we are certainly hearing sound from the presidential teamsh to reace opposition in a push for a possible compromise. what we're likely to see in the next 90 minutes here is a meeting between egypt's president and some top judges here inside cairo. judges across the country have gone on strike. they say the president tried to put himself above the law. we could see some scaling back from a presidential team that has been surprised by the angry reaction to the move by president morsi, martha. martha: such a key moment for the future of egypt. what happens if they fail to reach any kind of compromise here? >> reporter: well for the past four days
they heard the last time in this situation. they are concerned about mohammed morsi and the rules he has put in place that some say gives him more power than the pharaohs in egypt. bill: a guy you may or may not have heard before, grover norquist is his name, and 250 years ago he started an antitax hike pledge campaign. among all republicans in washington. right now he's the target for a lot of folks, including tarr harry reid on the floor of the senate only moments ago. listen to him. >> unfortunately there is one obstacle standing between you and congress to compromise, grover norquist. for years he has bullied lawmakers willing to put their oath of office or promise to serve constituents ahead of their pledge to this antitax zealot. his brand of ideological extremism has been bad for congress and even worse for the country. i was pleased to see republicans in congress distance themselves from norquist this week. i appreciate that very much. bill: here now to react. grover norquist, americans for tax reform. good morning to you. >> sure. bill: harry reid, what do you think about that? >> w
ringing with calls for the downfall of a dictator. this time it's for this man, president mohamed morsi, whom america relies on to be a regional peace broker. last week he granted himself unchecked power, leading to today's bloody clashes. the crowd is chanting the same chants we heard two years ago during the revolution, except that they have substituted mubarak for morsi. egyptians toppled president hosni mubarak, a dictator who ruled for three decades. they then held a historic election, voted in the new president, and now -- >> he's like a pharoah. >> reporter: morsi's office says the move is just temporary, to sideline remnants of the mubarak era and put egypt on the right track. the wise voices say it is far from clear who will win the showdown. but there are certainly more bloody days ahead on egypt's bumpy road to democracy. >> we said it often here, watching the arab spring take shape over the last, you know, year and a half year or so. the overthrow is the hard part -- the easy part. the hard part is building a real democracy, a last democracy to take its place.
